UNIVERSITY SYSTEM OF GEORGIA
University System of Georgia institutions and the Georgia Council on Problem Gambling engage in collaborations which serve the missions of our respective organizations. Each serves unique roles. The Council as the “Voice of Georgia Gambling Addiction”. The USG provides intellectual resources to advance knowledge of gambling addiction.
BRIDGE TO SUCCESS INTERNSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM
We provide bachelor’s level internship training opportunities in problem gambling. While not paid psychology internships, the experience and networking opportunities are significant. We are especially proud of our collaboration with the Fort Valley State University Dept of Psychology. Interns are exposed to a broad based experience. During their training they are a core part of executing the Council’s mission and learn much about problem gambling in Georgia.
Interns receive one-to-one mentoring a minimum of 2 hours per week. They are exposed to the national network of state chapters of the National Council on Problem Gambling.

SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
GCPG is seeking interns with experience in Social Media applicable to problem gambling or other non-profit organizations. The ideal candidate will have experience with Facebook, Twitter, GooglePlus, Pinterest and other social media sites.
SEEKING MOTIVATED SELF STARTERS
Our internships are not limited to University System of Georgia students. We are seeking self starters who are able to work independently on developing projects. If you are a student of a private university or other setting which requires experience in non-profit advocacy work for mental/behavioral health and addiction, GCPG provides exceptional training.
Dependent upon your program, students have opportunities to engage in literature reviews and other research. Activities such as this are invaluable. They provide students with information useful for graduating senior writing assignments. This is also helpful for papers required to be written in APA style. We provide students a level of experience that prepares them for graduate study in social work and other behavioral sciences.
HIGH QUALITY TRAINING
We consistently receive high ratings from both students and academic institutions on the quality of students’ training experience. Your site coordinator is a licensed mental health professional and National Certified Gambling Counselor in Georgia. They will provide you with an experience helpful in your decision to pursue a career in gambler or other addiction and behavioral sciences. Prior interns have benefited from networking opportunities such as photo ops with the Georgia Governor–an internship at the Georgia Council on Problem Gambling is a motivational and enriching academic opportunity.
